Meet Maddie

Meet Maddie

Ladies and gentlemen,

Today we workout for something bigger than us. Today we workout in support of CellCycle, the organization created to raise awareness and support for people like Maddie, a survivor of leukemia. Today we invite anyone and everyone to stop by Verve and enjoy a workout. While you are at Verve today, we encourage you to donate to CellCycle and help the fight against cancer. Here is Maddie’s story:

“In her short five years, she has endured more medical treatment than someone should endure in their whole life, however, her strength and courage have become an inspiration for our family, friends, and the community at large.

After three months of repeated fevers, joint pain, and numerous trips to the doctors, Madison was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March 2014. She has been in treatment at Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital for the last two years and is currently in remission.

Luckily for Madison we believe the hardest is behind us. The intensive chemotherapy, the loss of hair, and the long hospital stays are all hopefully things of the past. Madison continues ongoing treatment in her maintenance phase with monthly visits to the hospital for chemotherapy and daily chemotherapy pills. Her spirit and energy shine through! She is a normal and healthy five-year-old girl and her bravery and strength regardless of what she’s going through is an inspiration to us all.

Madison loves riding her bike, swimming, skiing, playing with her little sister Olivia, art, drawing, writing, and reading.  She is currently in Kindergarten at International School of Denver.”
